Bar-Tailed Godwits

2 bar-tailed godwits this afternoon at ringstone,from the roadside,in a howling wind. the 'photo's where taken with a hand held camera at a distance. the birds where initialy bathing & preening,so i had to wait a few minutes for these record shots.hope others saw them.

when preening and viewed through a scope the barred tail was obvious, granted the photo isn't very clear,but like i said,they where at a distance with a hand held camera.
